Improving Safety at Roadworks using an Information and Warning System

Maintaining safety at roadworks is a widespread problem that needs to be addressed, and current solutions are most often of an administrative or physical nature. e-Road Safety – ERS – is a new roadworks information and warning system which aims to enhance the safety of road workers and road users alike by utilizing the full potential of information and communications technology. ERS will reduce the risk of accidents suffered by road workers and road users, improve the work environment for road workers, and improve traffic flow for road users. ERS was developed by VTS (a Swedish ITS provider) in collaboration with Svevia (a Swedish road maintenance provider).
